HONG KONG.- Sotheby’s and K11 Group – the two leading cultural pioneers – join forces once again this June to present the preview exhibition of Jay Chou X Sotheby's. The one-of-a-kind collaboration, facilitated by Enviseam, marks the inaugural edition of Sotheby’s celebrated Contemporary Curated auction series in Asia with the legendary musical icon and avid art collector Jay Chou as the esteemed curator.

From 11 – 18 June, art collectors, lovers of music and culture, and members of the public are cordially invited to K11 MUSEA and K11 ATELIER to experience the singular artistic and curatorial vision of Jay Chou. Under Jay’s special direction, the traditional exhibition space has been transformed into an immersive environment, offering visitors an unconventional experience uniting fine art, culture, and entertainment.

Jay Chou says: “In this collaboration, I have directed a set design for the preview exhibition to bring people back to the times when these works were created. Audiences will not just be looking at the paintings, but experiencing the paintings as being part of their space and time. I wish to share the powerful feelings and deep connections art has brought to me, and I hope this collaboration will leave everyone with different ways of understanding and appreciating the art that surrounds us every day.”

As the art journey begins at K11 MUSEA, visitors will be greeted by an antique ornate piano featured in the movie "Secret" (2007) starring Jay Chou that was also his directorial debut; as well as three sets of bespoke concert costumes worn by Jay Chou during his seventh, “The Invincible”, world tour, with proceeds to charity. The journey continues with the art exhibition at K11 ATELIER, where more than 50 artworks from the Evening Sale and Online Day Sale are on display. Notable highlights include Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Untitled from 1985, an iconic work that was featured on the cover of The New York Times Magazine in 1985; as well as Pablo Picasso’s Buste d’Homme, a powerful portrait that encapsulates the key themes of the artist’s late work – a tribute to Van Gogh with the figure of his alter-ego – the musketeer.
